4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 4 years' warranty and 60 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Kawai

Since being established in 1927, Kawai has grown to become one of the largest music manufacturers in the world. The sole focus from Kawai is to create the best quality digital and acoustic pianos and as a result, Kawai has produced some of the world renowned concert grand pianos such as the Shigeru Kawai EX and Shigeru Kawai SK-5. Kawai use their years of knowledge and expertise to recreate the experience of playing and authentic acoustic grand piano. Through Kawai's pioneering wooden key components for their digital pianos the are always being innovative to create the best piano playing experience as possible.

Harmonic Imaging® Sound Technology

The Kawai ES8 Digital Piano is equipped with proprietary Harmonic Imaging® technology which delicately captures the sound of Kawai's flagship SK-EX, SK-5 and EX grand pianos; with each of the 88 keys painstakingly recorded, analysed and accurately reproduced. As a result, it recreates the broad dynamic ranges and expression of the original grand piano and provides notes from the strongest fortissimo right down to the softest pianissimo.

Responsive Hammer III Action

The ES8's Responsive Hammer III keyboard action imitates the unique feel of an acoustic grand piano by the way that the keys move and the 3-sensor technology creating an accurate, smooth, expressive and natural experience. The weight of the individual keys is graded to match the heavier bass hammers and the lighter treble hammers of acoustic pianos. This is supported by structural reinforcements inside the action assembly to create increased stability during staccato and fortissimo passages. The Responsive Hammer III keyboard action also mimics the delicate let-off feeling experienced when softly playing an acoustic grand piano, enhancing the subtle pianissimo playing to please the most particular of players. The finely finished IvoryTouch keys gently absorbs any surface moisture to aid with playing control whilst the matt finish of the keys provides a smooth surface.

Virtual Technician Technology

Kawai's inventive Virtual Technician technology allows you to tailor the tonal characteristics to your needs. The ES8 offers adjustable settings for string and dampener resonances; voicing and regulation; delicate hammer and key release sounds, even the volume and precise tuning or each individual note. The Virtual Technician feature allows you to store your personal instrument settings to the ES8's in-built memory, allowing you to customise the instrument to your particular needs to achieve the sound of your dreams.

Professional Accompaniment Styles

With a wide variety of styles from latin, jazz-funk, rock and pop ballads and dance, the Rhythm Section on the Kawai ES8 digital piano enables solo performers to rehearse and perform with professional standard backing accompaniments by the touch of a button. Also, the 100 preset chord progression and One Finger Ad-lib™ solo phrases facilitates musicians to breathe life into their performances and also keep control over their repertoire.

Kawai 5 Year European Warranty
